Efficient, safe and quality tree removal is a service in high demand. Everything from property development and renovations, to risk mitigation and environmental preservation can be helped by the extraction of obstructive or damaged trees.
Tree removal is an essential part of maintaining a safe and healthy environment for your home and your community. Trees can become hazardous or obstructive in a number of ways.
Storms are one of the most common causes of damaged and falling trees. However, while many people become conscious of the condition of their trees during or after a strong storm, it is important to be proactive in safeguarding your home. Age, disease, damage and neglect can each lead to the deterioration of a healthy tree and the need to remove it from your property.
Healthy trees too, can cause headaches for homeowners. The root system of a tree can grow up to 12x the length of its branches. This can lead to a whole host of underground issues for your property, from busted pipes to cracked walls and pavement.
Trees come in all sorts of sizes, shapes and locations. As such, our removal process must be adaptable to whatever circumstance may come our way. From climbing and dismembering trees, to using a crane to extract them from difficult locations; we have the tools and the experience to deal with any challenge.
For large mature trees, we generally use a team of four people. This team will consist of a climber, a backup climber in case of emergencies and two more ground crew. Our team can normally take these large trees apart and remove them from a property within 1-2 hours.
- The team will conduct an onsite safety check to identify and plan for any nearby obstacles or hazards
- The climber will scale the tree and set up his lines
- Once the lines are set, the climber will use a chainsaw to slowly dismantle the tree, piece by piece, lowering the segments down to the ground crew
- The team on the ground will remove the green waste from the site, wood-chipping any of the larger pieces
- Once all branches and canopy have been removed, the climber will either dismantle the trunk from the top down, or – depending on the available space – descend so the crew can fell the entire tree
- The remaining green waste is then broken down by the wood-chipper and removed from the property
- The crew conduct a final sweep of the property to ensure it is left in as good, or better condition than it started
FEATURED PROJECT – TACKLING A CYPRESS TREE IN CHISIPITE
From the top of a Cyprus Tree in Chisipite, one of our lead climbers holds his lowering rope and assesses his work.
He has just removed the Cyprus’ many massive branches with his climbing chainsaw, which now hangs several feet below him, safely attached to a line.
The climber will now work with his climbing crew to remove the rest of the tree, cutting sections off the top and lowering them to his team. Once the tree has been fully disassembled, the crew will wood-chip the large sections and remove all waste from the property.
